In the eighties and nineties, portrait-painter Virginia Adair travelled the world over to interview 43 randomly selected female psychics of our time.

In the process, she discovered that a revolution was a-borning -- the re-ascension to power of the psychic energies of women.

Book description
In the mid-1990s, Atlanta, Georgia-based portrait painter Virginia Adair traveled the world over, interviewing 43 female psychics and healers randomly chosen from 15 countries as far apart as Indonesia and Argentina. Through her interviews with women psychics of various cultures, we learn their life histories, the nature and limitations of their paranormal abilities, and their value systems. Ms. Adair seeks to understand the phenomena from a scientific point of view, citing contemporary scientists and philosophers. She wonders if the growing incidence of female paranormal power signals the start of an evolutionary leap forward.
